Fields says thanks to the community

Due to the quick action of first responders and local volunteers, the Fields store was saved

Editor, The Times:

On Friday, Dec. 7, our store in Clearwater was seriously threatened by a fire at Uncle Barry’s Treasures – our next door neighbour. Due to the quick action of first responders and local volunteers, the Fields store was saved.

I cannot express how deeply grateful we are at Fields for the hard work that everyone put in that evening. We love being a part of your community and, as unfortunate an event as this was, it was truly amazing to see how everyone was able to pull together and protect another business from being lost.

Our sincere gratitude goes out to the Clearwater and Blackpool Fire Departments for not only putting out the fire in Uncle Barry’s, but also for prioritizing the protection of the adjacent Fields store.

We’d also like to thank Doug Borrow of Borrow Enterprises for his help the day after the fire. Our parking lot had turned into an ice rink due to all the water; Mr. Borrow came out and sanded our lot, allowing us to open up the very next day.

Again, I can’t thank the Clearwater community enough for all they did to save our store – we are blessed to be in a community such as yours.

Jason McDougall
